Well I'm back from the annual Cherish the Child Conference in Harford County, hosted by the dear folks at the Mountain Christian Church.  It is always a delight to go to this conference,  learn a thing or two and come away fired up to keep up the fight  - and sadly a fight it sometimes is. But that is not a subject for conversation here.  You know I would never discuss a client. Well, it has been quite an eventful week.  Or two.   As for my living situation, there is yet a bit of hope that we might remain here for at least another year and if extremely lucky, longer.

The only reason I am writing this late on a Wednesay afternoon is that I took today off.  It's the end of our lease soon and the landlord wants to come by and make sure we aren't growing crops in his carpeting. I don't blame him.  Who knows what we'd do left to our own devices.  Seriously, there wasn't much cleaning to do, but it is rather amazing how many little tasks can add up and since I didn't have anything that couldn't be rescheduled and it wouldn't have been fair to stick John with all the work, here I am.   So wh…
